Tow truck tire suggestions


Recommended Posts

I have been using my 2011 Ram 2500 diesel Laramie (6 foot bed, non dually) as my tow vehicle for 5th wheels for 7 years and have hadno problems with it. This year I had to get snow tires (Blizzaks) to get around without a 5er attached here in Minnesota. The Blizzaks cannot be used in warm weather and are really not appropriate for towing. My 5er is a Cedar Creek 41 feet with loaded weight of 15, 700 measured. The last set of all season tires were Yokohama 10 plies, and they only lasted two years of full timing (about 30,000 miles).   I am thinking I should buy a new set of wheels and a set of appropriate tires for warm weather and RVing. So, two questions. First, steel or aluminum wheels? Second, specific tire recommendations?
